Surgery

Posted by Suzy Taylor Oakley on December 20, 2007

Bruce had surgery Wednesday evening on the abscess/fistula in his rectal area. The surgeon sliced open the swollen spot and packed it with gauze. The wound will take several weeks to heal — or he may have an open wound for the rest of his life. He hasn’t been able to sit up for several months. He has managed to keep his sense of humor throughout all the pain and the many trips to the potty. And I have a new nickname for him — Rumble Butt. (In case you’re new to this blog — Bruce has Crohn’s disease.)

Please pray for Bruce, as well as our friend Ray and his family. Hospice has been called for Ray.

Love you all,

Suzy
